Can u explain what u want exactly - c++/c will be the best option if u want a system program which will come up at regular intervals if there are no keypresses.Because startup time for java in its current implementation is high.

And are u planning to keep midlet running always in the background

MIDP 2.0 does not allow background MIDlets in the intented way,

It seems MIDP 3.0 is going to support background MIdlets.
